This kit pairs the Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head with the 54G6B Pro Video Tripod to form a solid, stylish support system that's ready for action. The head supports up to 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg) of professional video gear, be it a mid-sized HD camcorder or a fully outfitted DSLR camera rig. The 504HD head introduces Manfrotto's redesigned counterbalance system with four presets from 0 to 16.5 lbs. The head's redesigned variable friction components are marked clearly with degree scales, and pan/tilt movement is vibration-free.
The 546GB aluminum two-stage tripod extends to a maximum height of 62.4 in (158.5 cm). It features a ground-level spreader for setting proper leg angles – and for keeping the feet (spiked, with included rubber overshoes) firmly in place.
